I did a search and didn't find anything on this so.... I was reading this month's Bass Player and in the A.J. article he listed a bunch of pro audio gear as his rig. A mic pre, parametric eq, and powered p.a. cabs. I was just curious if anyone here uses that sort of setup or has used this type of setup live (I know a lot of people use mic pre's in the studio)? I know that it will create a more pure and uncolored sound and was wondering why more people don't do this. It seems like a lot of people are saying they want an amp that puts out a pure, uncolored sound of their bass and it would seem like this would be the ideal way to do it.
